There's me, with a little photoshopping!
About this Cook
I was a latchkey kid growing up so I started cooking for myself very young. I remember trying different things out with my brother and sister. Some were disasters and some turned out not too bad!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with butter! I really like making soups that seem to warm your heart and soul. I also love making fresh breads at home and yummy breakfast's. I'm always looking for great breakfast recipes! I love to cook desserts too. Sugar and butter make everyone happy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A big Saturday morning breakfast where we all get together and feast!
My cooking triumphs
Everyone loves when I make pumpkin cheesecake, similar to the Cheesecake Factory's. It is definitely a special treat!

Ultimo's No-Bake Blueberry Squares
This recipe was so easy and so good. We served it at the fourth of July and it was gone in a flash. People are still emailing me asking for the recipe. Yum!

Basic Crepes
This is a very easy and yummy recipe. While it doesn't have quite the thin transparency of a real crepe, it works in a pinch when you are craving crepes but don't have the hours to wait for the batter. We loved them with fried cinnamon apples and whipped cream! Also, strawberries and cream. Of course any crepes are better with Nutella too!
